Report: Lindsay Lohan rejects offer from ‘Dancing With the Stars’
Lindsay Lohan and Ann Romney may have one thing in common: They have reportedly both rejected offers to be on “Dancing With the Stars.”
Rumor has it that the beleaguered “Mean Girls” actress has rejected an offer to join the juggernaut ballroom-dancing competition because she reportedly wants to stick to films and doesn’t want to do reality TV. So LiLo actually thinks she’s above something else besides the law, then?
Romney, wife of former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, reportedly turned down the show last week. But back to LiLo...
“The actress was made several offers to join the ‘DWTS’ cast this upcoming season — offers that maxed out at $550,000,” according to a TMZ source.
Seems strange that she’d say no to that kind of cash, since Lohan owns quite a bit in back taxes (enough that even Charlie Sheen has given her a handout). “Dancing With the Stars” also has a decent track record for rehabilitating some of the most loathed pseudo-celebs, including Kate Gosselin and Bristol Palin.
A rep for “Dancing With the Stars” told TMZ that they do not comment on casting.
Lohan is still facing awful reviews for her turn as Elizabeth Taylor in Lifetime’s “Liz & Dick” last November. Her outrageous behavior on the set of “The Canyons” was highlighted in a New York Times Magazine article about the making of the film; audio of Lohan cussing out her porn-star costar James Deen was circulated shortly after. And “The Canyons” was rejected from this year’s Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
Her film career has been quite rocky, but she’s taking another stab at the big screen in the upcoming Adrien Brody film “InAPPropriate.” Seems right up her alley, no?
